Moon Palace 2008 & 2009 Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 

Some of you have already welcomed me on the newbies board - but I just wanted to introduce myself.

 

I'm Siobhan, a transplanted New Yorker in Baltimore, MD. My Fiance, Thomas and I are in the early stages of planning our Moon Palace wedding in July 2009.

 

We have not yet reserved a date, but we have confirmed site visits on Monday August 11th. I can't wait!

 

I'm looking forward to sharing all my ideas and getting your amazing advice on everything.

 

You all seem like a lovely bunch of ladies!

 

I'm so happy I found you!

Good morning! I agree with that....unless we all walk down together :o) I think it would be more romantic for my husband and I meet and walk down together. Our kids will have great memories of watching us do that...it'll also let them know that despite all the disposable marriages out there....there are still ones out there that last like there supposed to.

If you look at the photo of the gazebo, they have wind barriers. I never noticed them before and am not sure if they are just on the chapel gazebo, but that might take care of the wind. You know the whole 20 guests, 20 year, 20 candles sounds a little appealing. I am thinking it might be a PITA to get them all there though. 20 candles are a lot to tote around - might be much easier for the sand thing. Some day soon - I have to make a decision.

My mom will be here in a couple of weeks - I think we will take the gerbera daisy approach as well as the oriental lily approach, but rather than real we might try and find life like silk. I am still trying to decide on that one. I love flowers - I love color - I love real flowers, but I hate to think that they will all be dead shortly there after.

Hi Lor - having children doesn't make it so you can't wear white :o( Anyway....I have recently learned that it doesn't matter what anyone thinks or says -we all need to do what makes ourselves happy. Ivory is beautiful! Who is making your silk flowers?

Hello all,

Sorry, I've been away and unable to post.

About the DJ, I was given a quote of 150 an hour and that he was only available inside. But is seems others were told different. Does anyone have a definite answer?

My big concern is the flowers. Does anyone have pictures of the bridal bouquet that comes with the packages? Or prices and photos of centerpieces?

This site has been a lifesaver. I don't know where I'd be without all of your posts.

Hello Ladies,

 

I am in the midst of making arrangements to send my email wedding proposal via the palace website.

 

Our hope is to have . . .

 

January 29, 2009 @ 3pm

 

3pm Wedding - in the Chapel Gazebo ~

* Do you have to have a catholic ceremony?

- as I am Canadian and we are not able to have the catholic ceremony (as per the palace webside)

 

followed by a

 

Cocktail Reception on the terrace - overlooking the ocean - beside the Chapel Gazebo

(while we are having pictures taken)

* I think this should be free, as we have at least 10 rooms booked through CAA Travel and a group contract with the hotel through Signature

 

followed by

 

Dinner at the Steak Restaurant-or some other restaurant (any recommendations)

 

or Ideally

 

Dinner on the terrace (beside the Chapel Gazebo)

- We would like all the 'bells and whistles' ~ We hope to have the special linens, seating guide, menu card ~ all the extras would find on the website ~ Does anyone have experience with this?

 

Sound System - as we have heard that you can use your IPOD??

Lighting System - any info is helpful?

 

Is any other bride planning this type of day ~ as I could you any advise - pics etc.

 

I also hope to hire an outside photographer vendor - Del Sol Photography ~ Does anyone have any reviews of their abilities - costs? Or do you recommed another Vendor?

My thought is if you are going to go away you should have terrific pictures that truly detail the experience.

 

Grand Moon side - has anyone heard updates on this side of the resort - as we have requested that our guests stay on this sidehuh.gif??

 

Sorry for the 20 questions - but I am sure there are more (lol)

 

Thank you to each of you as your posts are a huge help!

 

Take Care

Laura

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
